At least five US military personnel could face a disciplinary review following the burning of copies of the Qur'an by American soldiers in Afghanistan.
A joint investigation by senior Afghan and US military officials has concluded that although mistakes were made when troops at Bagram airbase, near Kabul, had burned copies of the Qur'an and other religious literature along with piles of waste paper, there was no intent to desecrate the Islamic religious texts.
A western official said the investigation could lead to a disciplinary review of at least five US military personnel involved.
But a different panel appointed by the Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, to investigate the incident, has concluded that the burning of the holy books was deliberate.

“Just another case in which the enemy tries to probe our defenses, damage our morale, and confuse the clarity of our prosecution of this war.”
The enemy has a willing partner in our muslim, creepinchief,pos, poseur president. It certainly confuses the issue of who our true enemy is.
Judge Says Ok to Beat Someone Attacking Islam
ZombieMuhammadLast October, atheist Ernie Perce wore a zombie Muhammad costume to a Halloween event. Talaag Elbayomy, a Muslim, confronted Perce about his costume, told him it was offensive and then started to beat him. The attack was caught on video.
Elbayomy was arrested and charged with assault. At the trial, there was testimony presented by an officer who witnesses the attack along with the video. Judge Mark Martin, then dismissed the case against Elbayomy and lectured Perce about the sensitivities of the Muslim culture. In court, Martin told Perce,
Thats right. Judge Martin, who served in Iraq, is a convert to Islam. His own personal Islamic beliefs definitely clouded his ability to interpret US and Pennsylvania law. His decision to throw out the case basically sends a message to all Muslims in Pennsylvania that they can physically attack anyone who offends their religion....
I wonder what the punishment is for burning a book? Have we really come this far?
Obama bowing again.
What will they be charged with—illegally burning trash?
“I will side with the Muslims”....
They’re going to be ‘Murtha’d’.
To those demanding punishment: pee up a rope!
Obama punishes patriots to appease traitorous “allies”.
Top down treason. I can’t believe this guy is considered a remotely viable candidate, even with the weak republican field.
Absoulute true...which is why I was dumbfounded when the SOB got elected.
Western civilization has been in an existential war with Islam since the time of Mohammed.
The fact that liberals are useful idiots here is just amazing. They would be the first to die!
One thing is certain. If Islam loses this war (and they will...the only question is how much blood will be shed), Western civilization (Judeo-Christianity) will be stronger and smarter by an order of magnitude.
What item in the UCMJ did they violate? Tis is the most ridicululous thing that I have heard of recently.
Let them martyr themselves retrieving their sacred texts.
yeah, they shoulda coulda woulda sent those defaced books to some imam to burn in his fireplace at home
Well it's ok to burn a U.S. flag, so you be the judge.
